https://youtu.be/c0WtwtOCC1g It's been four years since the chillwave all star, Neon Indian aka Alan Palomo, hit us with the memorable Era Extraña. However, after the announcement of his forthcoming album, VEGA INTL. Night School in August and the simultaneous release of one of the record's singles, "Slumlord," it's clear that Palomo didn't fall off the face of the earth, rather he's just been cranking out and perfecting quite possibly his best album yet.
With Palomo's second, and most recent release from the new album, "The Glitzy Hive," bouncy bass parts, earworm melodies and bubbling keyboards quickly inhabit the synth-funk single. If the groove-infused track, seemingly plucked out of the vinyl line-up at a 70s discotheque, is any indicator of the undeniable groove we'll find on VEGA INTL. Night School, then we're in.
Palomo described the new LP as the score to an imaginary film that plays after dark in the seedy places around New York. He noted in a press release for the record that "most of what [he has] learned about human nature in [his] twenties has happened after dark. People are just kind of more honest then. More deliberate. [He likes] to call the places [he] goes to Night Schools."
Palomo is not only spot on in capturing this late-night atmosphere, but undoubtedly about to release his most dance floor-friendly collection thus far.
